their job? >> well, i initially felt that this was probably going to be a defense case because the prosecution just didn't have the evidence. but anybody who watched this network during the trial knows that as time went on, i began to see evidence that the prosecution, they simply weren't arguing and by closing argument they failed to put it together. it's entirely predictable this jury would take the jury instructions the law and try to apply the facts and if they don't fit they have to acquit and what jurors do in every case. >> were you surprised by what she was saying? >> no. this is exactly what i was saying frankly before the verdict this is how it was going to turn out when both sides are arguing reasonable doubt only one possible outcome and that was acquittal. she couldn't put it together. that is the prosecution' job. give them the theory of the case. that didn't happen. they failed to do that and so this was the predictable outcome and i'm so moved by her -- her tension, her conflict that she somehow knows this wasn't the right outcome but it's the one she had to com
, let me get to you react to what mark o'mara, the defense attorney for george zimmerman posted a little while ago, while juror b-29 is a model juror. "people may disagree with self-defense laws but a juror's job is not to decide what a law should be, her job is to apply the facts presented at trial to the laws they are instructed about. this is the eence of what we seek in a juror, the at to use one as common sense, apply the law to the facts, agree not to be swayed by sympathy or emotion, no matter how loudly it's argued by the prosecutors and decide a lawful and fair verdict." do you agree that juror b-29 was a, quote, model juror? >> well, i don't know if she was a model juror or not. i certainly think that she approached the process in good faith. i don't think there's any reason to doubt that she did that. but i think jeffrey makes a good point. what is really clear when we hear this juror speak is that she really misunderstood the law. she did not appropriately apply the law to the facts because she didn't understand it. and the reason why she didn't understand it could be because

me now, criminal defense attorney page pate and columnist for "chicago defender" welcome back. jason, let's start with the emotion of this case. what that juror just said that she carries this on her back and she will carry this in her forever. >> this is huge and interesting that she is the only juror that wants to come forward and be seen because there is a classic example. a difference between the law and justice. she reflects with a lot of people out there protesting over the last two and a half weeks we're talking about. everybody knows this guy did something wrong, but whether we can fit that into the law, that's the challenge. >> page, like juror b37 she seemed to be confused by the law. maddie said, "that's where i felt confused. if a person kills someone, you get charged for it. as the law was read to me, if you have no proof he killed him intentionally, you can't say he's guilty. did she get that right? >> she did get that right but she started out as a guilty, a guilty on the more serious murder charge. what happened back in the jury room is you had other jurors who had li

: we are just hours away from a sentencing hearing, on wednesday morning, where defense and prosecutors will argue of over what is an appropriate sentence. the judge could decide to let the charges run concurrently or string them out, and come up with a number of years that manning will serve. erin? >> that number of years so important. thank you very much, chris. >>> republican congressman peter king, a member of the house homeland security committee and the house intelligence committee. good to see you, sir, as always. >> thank you. >> are you happy, disappointed? what word would you use? >> i'm gratified that he was convicted on five counts of espionage, plus the other theft counts. es pooj espionage is a serious, sere crime. and five counts, that should have a very, very significant prison sentence and hopefully it will be deterrent to other people such as bradley manning or edward snowden, that type of individual that believes they can disclose national secrets. >> so, the sentencing phase of this court-martial is going to start tomorrow. he could get up to 136 years. what is the a

was so obvious there was no defense to. it and if he is sentenced to the maximum, he is facing 20 years. he kept a slight credit because he was abused in the pre- trial confinement and gave hymn credit for a couple hundred days. we start with 20 years and then get to serious charges. here is significance. bradley manning argues he didn't reveal them to the enemy but the woky leaks and under supreme court law wikileaks can't be published because if they are a journalistic entitties, then the person who gives it to the journalist and the journalist who reveals it, the person who gives it cannot be prosecuted for what the journalist did. the judge may push the law in one direction or another. we haven't sewn a case like this. norm willy the charge is against the journalist and here it is against the person who gave it to journalist. >> kathryn harris might have news for us. >> with an explanation. >> yeah, we just had information that came out of the courtroom by that information center and what we are told that on the first count, the most source count bradley manning was found not guilty
charge. he was found not guilty of aiding the enemy. cully stimson, former secretary of defense tore detainees and legal fellow with the heritage foundation and mike barrett, former intelligence officer for the office of the secretary of defense. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> thanks for having us. heather: why not guilty for aiding and abetting the enemy? i will start with you, cully. >> heather to, prove aiding the enemy under the statute the government had to prove one, knowingly provided intelligence to the enemy. the enemy is al qaeda an the taliban and two he did so knowingly. so there was a double burden. the judge had to be firmly convinced that was the case and clearly they didn't prove their case. one thing if he provided directly to al qaeda or taliban and posted to one of their websites. imagine this, if he gave the same information to "washington post" and guardian, and published some of it would he be charged with aiding the enemy? i doubt it. so there was a failure of proof. heather: mike, can you compare wikileaks to "washington post" and "the guardian"? >
whitey bulger. the defense will open its case on monday. jim armstrong has the story. >> reporter: the government ended its case on two powerful witnesses, one, what was known as massive money laundering and the other an irs agent who arrested him. he co--owned a bank account with his brother that was used to collect on big south boston debt long after whitey went on the run. after that jurors got to see everything pulled out of bulger's apartment turned hideout in santa monica california. more than $822,000 in cash hidden in walls alongside 30 pistols, rifles and other weapons. the witness testified he screamed and swore when arrested but eventually calmed down and told katherine to say, yes and, they're going get it. he used his real name joking quote, this is the first time i've signed this name in a long time. when agent gary hola asked if he would have ever used this arsenal to engage in a shoot-out with police, he said no because a stray bullet might hit someone. it was a powerful day of testimony and images but some are not confident of a conviction
that's been problematic from the case is the defense defines george zimmerman in a way that was helpful to his defense, but i don't think they feel as though their son has been well defined and sort of who he was. >> reporter: the back and forth over the martin case went to new heights after president obama himself weighed in with a deeply personal speech. >> when trayvon martin was first shot, i said that this could have been my son. another way of saying that is trayvon martin could have been me 35 years ago. >> all eyes are on the attorney general eric holder. the obama constituency wants to know whether they'll take any further steps in the case. >> by allowing and perhaps encouraging violent situations to escalate in public, such laws undermine public safety. the list of results tragedies is long and unfortunately has victimized too many who are innocent. it is our collective obligation. we must stand our ground. >> the martin family has started a foundation to honor trayvon's memory and to push for changes. >> we're here today to see what we can do to stop this from happening to y
.s. they are required to send the lion's share of their foreign aid package here with u.s. defense contractors. if the u.s. decided and the white house decided to cancel the contracts all together it would have a boom rang effect if not on the entire u.s. economy certainly with with u.s. defense contractors who are counting on the money and invested a lot of it. so members of congress and the white house have taken that into account before they think about canceling major contracts that a lot of u.s. jobs are relying on. >> thank you very much, jessica yellin. >>> still to come, ariel castro was back in court, the man who held three women captive allegedly for more than a decade may cut a deal. those women may also have to testify. they are next. plus the latest in the anthony weiner saga. the identity of the latest online. one hesitates to use the word if you read the lewd messages that he was sending her. >>> and then the pope visits brazil. why authorities raised security to the highest possible level. >>> and the week after the "rolling stone" controversial cover when dzhokhar tsarnaev was put on th
money. there would be no more shared national defense. it would just be texas on its own. the land where nobody messes with the fact that poor people can't afford health insurance. that was almost four years ago exactly. >> the opposition to reforming health care isn't the most cogent thing in the world thus far. the gop health care solutions group in congress, you will recall, admitted this week they think it's best if they don't actually offer any health care solutions. they'd rather just keep saying no to whatever it is the democrats are offering no matter what it is. but in this rollicking substance-free festival of incoherence, there is one man who is determined to be the most incoherent of all. little known outside his home state for anything other than having beautiful hair and for threatening to secede from the union back in april, texas governor rick perry is now threatening that texas will also secede from health care. i told you it was incoherent. speaking with a conservative talk show host yesterday on wbap in arlington, texas, governor perry had this to say about what he wan
of national defense. >> michael: nsa surveillance has become a key issue in the ongoing role that has em-boldened libertarians and tea partiers alike. >> this strain of libertarianism that is going through both parties right now, and making big headlines, i think is a very dangerous thought. these intellectual debates, i want them to come to new jersey and sit across from the widows and orphans and have that conversation, and -- and they won't, because that's a much tougher conversation to have. >> michael: both parties? it's going through both parties? really. he joined king in calling out rand paul. he said his views put the country at risk of future terrorist attacks. to which paul responded . . . yes, heaven forbid senator paul that we waste time and money help those who lost everything in a natural disaster. i don't like to agree with any republicans, but in this case chris christie is definitely the lesser of these two evils. joining us from d.c. is friend of "the war room," friend of mine, bill press of current tv's own "full court press." great to have you here as always. >> good
. >> bill: yeah, that was about whether the united states should have a robust defense overseas and intervene in places. >> exactly. >> bill: cleaned up like afghanistan. so christie is for that that's a traditional republican tradition where is paul is against it. so, some might say though this is healthy, to have this in the republican party to kind of shake it out because they are going to have a fight on their hands to defeat hillary clinton in 2006. -- 2016. >> that's right. if hillary clinton runs she will be associated with these obama policies that have given some -- a number, in fact, in the democratic party real pause. so, what's interesting about this is this is a problem that both parties are having simultaneously. i think the republicans probably need to have this out. and decide what kind of a party they want to be. >> bill: that's right. >> it looks like they are well on heir way to doing that. >> bill: brit, thank you. as the factor moves along this evening. we will report on a new bill to stop paying accused terrorist nidal hasan. jeanine pirro has some thoughts
